Haul myself up by the hair on my head,
Listen to brain and bottom complain,
You go on, well just stay in the bed (what a pair!)
Every morning, the same, sad refrain.

No smell of coffee is wafting to greet me.
Not a whiff of the stuff that Im craving.
The parts of my body that are able to move
Go in search of the brew that will save me.

Dump the old grounds, measure water for twelve.
Spend exactly one minute sniffing the can.
Ah, its so lovely, 3 scoops and Im done,
Push on and start heating my omelet pan.

3 mugs later, all showered, Im ready to go.
One more and Im cleaning the neighbors panes.
The ingrates remind me its twice, now, this week.
They point out its too much plus what if it rains?

Vacuuming, dusting, scrubbing the floors.
The entire house spotless in an hour and a half.
At 3 in the morning Im shining the mirror,
I wonder, should I be drinking decaf?

I think not!

Me addicted, too. My cure? Dine with wine and then recline--to hell with housework!

You live life in 3D techinicolour, Katy, that makes the rest of ours seem like antiqued monochrome! AND it's 24/7 with you, making others of us feel like mere part-time life-livers! Don't change your fix: it not only works for you but for the rest of us who get the vicarious pleasure from your "high"! Do you ever double it up with too much maple syrup as well?! Could be my lucky night and you'll just flap, flap your way across the Atlantic and I'll find you in MY broom cupboard at 3.00. in the morning, done and dusted by 5.00! Followed by full English breakfast, of course! :) You certainly are an "upper", gal! TY Kate xx

An anthem for all us caffine lovers. I have quit amoking. I have quit drinking Jim Beam chased with Coors Light. Damned if I will quit drinking coffee. Bah! Humbug! To the one that thought of that insidious stuff called decaf. Bah! Humbug!

I think not as well - the best time to shine mirrors has always been 3 AM - and coffee makes the job much easier. Shine and Caffeine On!

PS Pls put me third on the cleaning list after Matlack and Nordette - thanks.

I've got the strong stuff from New Orleans. When you're done with, Matlack's place, do visit me. I'm only 45 minutes from him. LOL. Great poem, Katy.

Rene, Rufuz and I should be getting a newer motorhome, its longer and wider and needs cleaning as it is used, we will have the coffee maker on constant brew just for you...LOL! Also, there is this store across the street that makes killer coffee, kinda like a 7-11, but much better called a WAWA...(store is only located in 550 places in the PA, DE, NJ, NY, and maybe MD & very eastern VA areas)Too bad you ain't got em' you would love em'! ED & Rufuz

Never drank coffee on a regular basis but I sure loved the smell of it brewing.
By all means switch to decaf and live 10 years longer. LOL

Drinking coffee in the shower can be tricky, Katydid. Especially if it's not decaf. Or as I like to call it: diesel.

Lol... thanks for the laugh. Decaf, never!
